Here's Lost? & Wife On Earth
Two brilliant solo shows. Ben Moor ("As a storyteller he is superb"

with our lives (with stops for ice cream). Then award-winning Joanna
Neary's ("utterly enchanting" Daily Telegraph) wife-based characters
populate the stage. Includes Bjork, Kate Bush, Celia Johnson and
dancing. ('Glorious fun' Observer).

'I REMAIN' Written & Directed by Parissa Zamanpour
'I Remain' is a one act drama based on the true story of the writer's
great, great, grandfather, Private Harry Hayes of the Manchester
Pals 17th Battalion of the First World War.
The play follows the story of Will, Harry's great, great, grandson, a
rebellious teenage boy struggling to come to terms with his demons.
Whilst staying at his grandma's house, Ada, to escape the troubles
he faces at home, he stumbles across a box of old photos. Amongst
the photos he ﬁnds an old picture of a soldier; Harry Hayes. Along
with the photo, Will ﬁnds a stack of letters written by Harry whilst in
the trenches in France in 1916.
Will becomes absorbed into these letters and Harry is once again
brought to life through the words of the past.
The Empty Space (formerly Footlights House)
24-26 Sep 7:30pm 90m
£12 (£10 concs)
The play is a look at the struggles of mental health, and ﬁnding
solace in the little things that we least expect by discovering the
powerful connection of our forgotten ancestors, that may be the key
to ﬁnding the light in times of darkness.
For Will, Harry might just save is life... more than 100 years later.
